Both are done by Wraith and both sound similar.
Normally I'd just watch them both but since they are 3+ hrs each I was wondering which is the "better" place to start.
Requiem War has better reviews but Trilogy is more recent.
Any input would be appreciated.

the trilogy edit are trims to each movie.

requiem war is one re-edited story.

so i guess it is how you would like to see it :)

Thanks for the clarification joebshmoe. I suppose that I could have read through and compared all the edits but didnt want to spoil the plot.

Perhaps there should be a more detailed explanation for potential viewers that better differentiates the 2 since they are so similar sounding (same editor, similar running time, same sources, etc).

I opted for "trilogy" since it was newer, I figured it would be more fluid since the editor had more experience w/ the source material.

it is actually not newer. Both are from the same time, they were just uploaded one after the other.
And yes, I agree that the info is still not great at all. But that's what I got from wraith. It will have to suffice.

Out of the two I opted requiem war, but when I did watch it I stopped around the time the 3rd movie kicked in. I think 1 & 2 work extremely well as one narrative. I need to get around to watching that last hour, but I think edits or not, it's still going to be hard to watch.

I opted for the "Requiem War" - y'know, to see more of a difference from viewing all three movies sequentially in a shorter time (which would be the Trilogy edit).

I watched Requiem War. I have to say that it is pretty awesome. I definitely enjoyed the way the editing was for the edit. I enjoy The Last Stand portion as well. Since it seems like a lot of the fluff of Last Stand was removed.

Even trimmed, I suspected I would not care for each movie, so I went for Requiem War and was not disappointed. It actually made me like the movies for the first time!
